EID lab fellows, North Carolina Public Health Laboratory

Through its fellowship and traineeship programs, APHL prepares students for careers in public health laboratories and supports specialized training for practicing scientists.

APHL/CDC Laboratory Fellowship

The Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) Laboratory Fellowship Program is currently on hiatus due to budget cuts. APHL plans to launch a revised public health laboratory fellowship program in 2016. Please check our website for updates in the fall of 2016.

Environmental Health Traineeships and Fellowships

The Environmental Health Fellowship and Traineeship Programs offer short term (2-6 weeks) specialized training in environmental health to public health laboratory scientists for traineeships and long term (1-2 years) hostings for fellowships.

Bioinformatics Fellowship Program

APHL is currently Recruiting for the 2016-17 class of Bioinformatics Fellows!

The APHL/CDC Bioinformatics Fellowship aims to train and prepare bioinformaticians to apply their expertise within public health and design tools to aid existing public health personnel in the use of bioinformatics. The Bioinformatics Fellowships provide post-masters and post-doctoral level professionals the opportunity to apply their skills to a range of important and emerging public health problems, while gaining experience in their fields. These 12-month fellowships include a stipend, opportunities to participate in training and attend conferences, as well as other benefits. Post-doctoral fellows may extend for an additional 12 months, provided funding is available.  Whether your specialty is metagenomics, algorithm/software development, microbial genomics, or another research area, we have a place for you!
